Unhappy FC7 on HP Laptop...almost boots!


I installed FC7 on my TX1220CA (variation of the TX1000), everything went fine, very nice.

Next I passed noapic and nolapic for first time boot otherwise it froze when pressing ok for setting clock settings.

Everything works fine...

I do a yum update....almost 900mb of updates, two hours later it's all done.

Reboot...

Again i append noapic and nolapic (newest kernel version) because I forgot to put it in the grub file.

Boot goes well...I get up to where the nice graphic thing that shows everything starting and then....locks up at starting sendmail. Computer doesn't freeze, it just keeps loading it forever.

Tried spamming "i" during boot to be able to select what to start (to prevent starting sendmail), it worked, but right after I am presented with a black screen and my mouse pointer...nothing more.

I am pretty sure it has something to do with apic or acpi...I've scoured the net for possible arguments to append to the kernel, and depending on what commands I give (noapic, nolapic, vga=0x317, acpi=off, noacpi and irqfixup) i get different results. Sometimes my usb mouse dosen't work but the touchpad does, sometimes if i press the shutdown button it turns off by itself, sometimes I have to keep it pressed down for a hard shut down...I haven't checked them individually to see which causes what...but I really don't understand why even if I try booting the old kernel version with noapic and nolapic it still does the same thing...

Any ideas?

By the way:
I am booting kernel 2.6.20-2936.fc7xen

should I append the commands in the line:
kernel /xen.gz-*blablablaversion* noapic etc?
or in
module /vmlinuz-*versionthing* ro root=*blablabla* rhgb quiet noapic etc?

First time I think i put it in the kernel line, not 100% sure though...i tried both now but neither work. I also have another module line with something about initrd.......fc7xen.img

Yes, they should go onto the kernel line.

Have a look at your logs or run dmesg to find out more about what may be causing these issues.

Here is what I did, and what happened:

I booted in runlevel 3, the ordinary lockup at sendmail seemed to occur...but then it started! Then it seemed to freeze at sm-client...but then it continued still!

It still hasn't finished booting (already 5 minutes)...now I'm waiting for Avahi daemon. Even if it does boot, there is clearly a problem somewhere...
From what I've read, many laptops have problems with apic, acpi, and something about interrupt requests.

I remember when the system was running before updating something about an irq error on irq 7 (not sure if it was 7) popping up in the console before i ran yum...
I will post an update if it does boot with anything interesting found in dmesg...stay tuned.


Edit: I found out that the system doesn't actually freeze...ctrl+alt+del actually starts the restart process and gracefully closes down everything even though it has been loading something for 10 minutes

Still haven't been able to complete boot yet.

Edit2: I am posting these as I go:
-with runlevel 3 and nolapic it *freezes* (ctrl alt del doesnt work) at the smart card daemon thing. It actually says "[ OK " it doesn't type the second bracket, it just ends there.
-with runlevel 3 and noapic it doesn't get past sendmail.
-with runlevel 3 only it gets to the Avahi daemon thing.

Edit3: 3 words: O M G!!!

I unplugged the LAN cable before booting and passed noapic nolapic and irqfixup...
This page is what I was using for reference for the whole Fedora installation:
http://www.kellyandsopho.com/tiki/ti...aviliontx1000z

anyways... IT WORKED... I just can't understand... I'll probably post what dmesg gives tomorrow...

update:

I booted with the following arguments:
noapic nolapic irqpoll
and the ethernet cable unplgged...

It seems that whenever i plug it and activate the connection, not only does it not work (and it has worked before in the old kernel) but my usb mouse stops working and after a time I can't even click anymore with the touchpad buttons! Also, the system seems to mess up completely (unresponsive, etc).

Here is what dmesg says after a boot with the above parameters:
(the last bunch of lines are me unplugging and plugging my usb key because it hadn't automatically recognized it when i booted with it plugged in)

Code:

Well, dmesg doesn't reveal anything dramatic. I would try the boot argument pci=nommconf. You may also want to check whether there is any more recent BIOS available for the motherboard.

Adding pci=nommconf (and booting with ethernet cable plugged in) it gets past sendmail and the other stuff up to xend where it locks up. Strange part is, it unlocks if i slide the power on/off switch of the laptop. It does so at different stages (black screens and stuff) but hitting power always unfreezes it...also my usb mouse doesn't work now...

Maybe it's the drivers, ill try to get the nvidia drivers for my chipset...

If you are really using "vga=0x317, acpi=off, noacpi and irqfixup", then it's easy: it's noapic instead on noacpi.

Now that you mention it, yes, disabling acpi is: acpi=off while disabling apic is noapic.
